Alternative Cancer Treatments

Anyone facing a cancer diagnosis knows the fear and uncertainty that it brings.

What should my treatment plan be? Is our doctor up on the latest treatment protocols? Should I submit my body to chemotherapy and radiation or surgery? And what are my chances for a full recovery?

These and other questions often lead patients to learn as much as they can about their conditions and this often results in the discovery of alternative & complementary approaches.

At Lifeworks Wellness Center we have successfully treated hundreds of cancer patients over many years, with alternative approaches.

Our approach uses the latest technologies available to deal with cancer while also supporting & enhancing the whole body, eliminating any toxic substances lodged within the system and supercharging your body's most powerful defense, your immune system. Your immune system is miraculous when running at peak efficiency and should have the power to stop & eliminate the disease process in its tracks.

This whole-body approach does not exclude using traditional cancer therapies, however it has the advantage of also using the latest natural, holistic, nutritional and whole-body approaches which make any treatments easier on the body and potentially more effective.

We have assembled a lot of information regarding our natural medicine cancer treatment protocols on this page. Here you can review patient success stories, helpful & informative articles on cancer & videos by Dr. Minkoff about natural medicine for cancer.

Dr. David Minkoff, M.D.
Founder and Medical Director
In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
